Choosing the Best Storage Facility
During our many years of operation we’ve gathered together bits of information that may help save you time, protect your stored property and make your storage experience a pleasant one.
While the monthly rent is an important factor when choosing a storage facility, there are other considerations that can enhance your storage experience and be of real value to you.
Things to consider:
Expect superior customer service from management and staff who are willing to “go the extra mile” to assist you. We can help make your storage experience easier and more pleasant.
Reputation in Community
Connect with friends, neighbors, and co-workers to see if they know of the facility or have used their services. Use social media and websites like the Better Business Bureau to see what others are saying.
Hours of Operation
Consider choosing a facility that will meet your access needs while maintaining a level of control.
Clean & Well-Maintained Facility
Keeping a tidy property shows that management and staff care about the quality of their work, and are looking to protect not only the company’s assets, but yours as well. Well lit hallways and common areas are a must.
Wide Aisles For Easy Access
Facilities with wide aisles allow easy access and maneuverability for moving trucks.
This allows easier, safer access for moving your furniture in and out of the storage unit.
Paved driveways make for less dust settle around the property. And who doesn't like a clean, tidy appearance?
Be sure there is a perimeter facility alarm system in place, as well as individual door alarms.
A state of the art camera system monitors the property keeping a close eye on things at all times.
Having access to clean, well maintained restrooms is an important feature of your storage facility. Make sure to inspect the restroom areas when you visit.
While most facilities don't offer rental insurance, they may have applications available to purchase insurance services from an outside company. If your personal insurance company does not extend insurance to your stored property, we recommend you purchase insurance to cover your needs while storing.
Facilities with management living on the premises, naturally have an extra layer of security. Security systems, even the most technically advanced, can be beaten by savvy criminals. Having eyes and ears on the facility grounds around the clock is definitely a plus!
